…To Be Continued….
Yep. One page today. But what a BIG REVEAL!
In the event you’re new to the series and read the last couple MANLY TALES and wondered how it was Atlantic Lad kept dying and then kept showing up, this story *MIGHT* explain that. (SPOILER ALERT: Ok, it does.)
There were a couple of key criticisms(comparisons to other comics/shows/etc) I got about MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE after the first issue that I knew I had to deal with right away. The first of which is Atlantis Lad.
Obviously, if you have a character who keeps dying and coming back the accusations that you’re just stealing from SOUTH PARK’s Kenny is inevitable. I think the key difference between Atlantis Lad and Kenny is while both are killed off repeatedly for comic effect, Atlantis Lad has a REASON he keeps coming back thats not just a play on the status quo of cartoons. Yes, I have a PLAN for Atlantis Lad. And While this won’t even really start to come into play until issue seven, the many deaths of Atlantis Lad will have an over-all effect on the entire series and the world these characters inhabit. For all I know Kennys deaths eventually meant/lead to something, but frankly I’ve only seen the first couple of seasons of SOUTH PARK and a handful of later episodes.
Yes, SOUTH PARK is a good show, but no, I am not “ripping it off”.
